This holiday season, all of our Supporters are entered to win an $800 Shopping Spree Giveaway!

The Septimus Creek Wind Power Project is the plan to construct and operate a 15 Megawatt wind power project in the Peace River Region. The project is a Zero Emission Energy Development, and is marketed as helping the province meet requirements under the B.C. Clean Energy Act.

The proposal will be located approximately 25 kilometres southwest of Taylor. It is estimated to supply enough power for 5,000 homes.

The SCWPP is scheduled to begin construction in late 2013, and will take approximately six to eight months to build, employing 20 to 30 people. Over its projected 25 year lifetime, the project is estimated to create 50 to 100 person-years of employment for operations and maintenance. Included will be six to ten wind turbines, in addition to the meteorological tower anc electrical collector systems.

Public consultation and First Nations engagement are some of the final steps, as the environmental assessment is nearly complete.

For more information, visit the Zero Emission Energy Developments website. Those who can’t attend the open house can also submit their questions or comments online.

The open house will be held on Monday, November 28 from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. at the Taylor Community Hall.
